  • Covid messed up a lot of things this year but one good thing it gave us was Sara Zarrella. She was our first choice photographer since we first got engaged but unfortunately is so popular she was booked solid. After quarantine when we revisited planning our wedding, we realized she was available and it was a no brainer. Her talent is inspiring, her pictures leave me in awe but most importantly, her personality and energy are what meant the most. As most brides do, I looked forward to my wedding day for many important reasons, but honestly top 3 for Brad and I was to spend the day with Sara. We knew we would have a blast and most importantly we trusted her, her team and her work. We knew that having Sara on our special day would ease any worries and we were not wrong. We can't properly express how incredible it is to have complete faith and trust in your photographer on your wedding day - it was everything to us. We are so grateful to Sara for making our big day better, for capturing ou... Read more

  • Sara is the real deal ... from initial conversations all the way through to final details she took all the pressure off us ... she knows what you want before you even do!! The ceremony was perfection, and she controlled the shoot the entire time ... she has a ton of energy so just let her lead the way!! We cannot say enough about Sara ... would hire her again in an INSTANT.

  • I can’t thank Sara enough for the amazing photos she captured on my wedding day. COVID changed everything we had planned for our wedding including size, state, and the date, but in the end it was perfect and it resulted in us getting to work with Sara for our big day. We were only able to meet Sara on the day of the wedding, which small as it was, still felt chaotic in the final moments leading up to the ceremony. Sara was such a calming presence and her approach to photography made me feel so comfortable and so beautiful. She captured our happiness so well, the photos are more than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Sara Zarrella photography for your wedding photos. If I could go back in time, I would have worked with Sara for my engagement photos as well. I look forward to hopefully working with her for family shoots in the future!

    Brittany this review is so sweet and wonderful!! I love that I was able to be there for you in these changing times, and hope that we can remain a part of your growing family in the future! Your wedding day was so full of happiness because you two are meant to be, and I'm so honored I got to be a part of it!

  • Sara came highly recommended and when we first met, we instantly connected with her refreshing personality and were so excited to work with her! We had our engagement photographs done by Sara which only further confirmed how we felt, and we were able to get a glimpse at what her final product is like, amazing! Sara was enthusiastic yet relaxing through the entire process which gave us comfort when working with her during a time of stress. Not only were we planning a wedding, but we had to deal with the unknown restrictions that COVID-19 would have on our wedding. Sara’s professionalism shined during these times and we were grateful with how reassuring she was for us. Sara also assisted us in making our decision to have a first look. For us, the first look made our experience more enjoyable and Sara assured us that our ceremony would not be diminished, and she was right! On the day of the wedding Sara and Dan were easy to work with, they worked quickly but did not make it feel ... Read more

  • With all the time spent planning (& re-planning due to COVID), we wanted to be sure each memory was captured. Before securing our date & venue, we reached out to Sara to confirm her availability. From our first call, to the day of our wedding, we knew that Sara was the perfect choice. Her passion and experience are reflected in the way she makes everyone feel comfortable and ensures that you are enjoying every moment. Due to restrictions we were unable to have the large wedding we had been planning for. However, we are forever grateful to be able to share our love & happiness from that day with those who could not attend through the beautiful photos Sara & Dan took. We cannot wait for Sara to capture our next big life moment.

  • Oh my god where do I begin? Sara captures and produces the most beautiful and timeless pictures. My husband and I are so happy we chose Sara for our wedding! Sara and Dan both have amazing energy which makes working with them so much fun! Dan was great- he made us both so relaxed and tells you exactly how to pose to capture those amazing photos. We cant thank you enough Sara and Dan- we are so happy with everything. -Tiana

  • Sara & her team photographed our engagement, first covid mini-wedding, andsecond bigger wedding/reception. To set the stage, I have zero imagination and had no "vision" for what I wanted... and I am also really uncomfortable having my picture taken. Long story short - I was pretty awful and had no idea what to do when it came to this stuff, but I knew my photographer was going to be one of the most important parts of our wedding experience. Choosing Sara was the best decision we could've possibly made. Starting with our engagement photos - she was beyond cool when I asked her to step into an alpaca farm, and she knocked it out of the park! Alpacas are unpredictable, and my husband & I are certainly no models even in an ordinary setting, but Sara knew exactly how to position it so that we all came out looking amazing. We also got to take some pictures around her beautiful home at Gerald's Farm. She gave us the right prompts to make sure we looked our best, but didn't pose us, so it l... Read more

  • My husband and I got engaged in June and decided to take advantage of a last-minute cancellation at Castle Hill Inn that became available in September for our wedding. With just about three months to plan our wedding and pick our vendors, the stress started to set in. Luckily, a close friend recommended Sara Zarrella for our photography. Having attended my friend’s wedding in Mexico and seen what beautiful pictures she had captured, I was sold! From the moment we began working with Sara it was stress free. She spent the time to understand what was most important about the memories we would capture in our photos. She was organized and let us both feel confident in her abilities and comfortable knowing she would be there to capture our day. On our wedding day, Sara did a great job ensuring we got the best shots, while making sure our time was spent enjoying the moments we were in. We are so thankful for Sara for capturing our special day- it is what we will look back on for years to c... Read more

  • I worked with Sara Zarella Photography and Rock your booth in planning and during my wedding that happened on Sept 12,2020. My original wedding venue cancelled my wedding on my husband and I two weeks before my wedding and Sara came to the rescue as we moved our wedding from NY to Newport! The efforts that were demonstrated passed my exceptations! I was so happy to work with Dan as he did an amazing job with my photos and showing a lot of interests on where to take photos. Rock the booth was an amazing addition to the wedding fun as all my guests used the photobooth all night! I cant thank the staff enough! Really would recommend!

  • Sara and her team are incredible! Due to the pandemic, we had to split our ceremony and reception into two separate dates. Sara made this transition so smooth and helped us choose the best package to accommodate our needs! She is so much fun to be around and immediately puts you at ease! Although she was our photographer, it felt more like working with a close friend...she even helped me place my veil! You can tell that she loves what she does and puts her whole heart into her work! The photographs she takes are stunning and she knows just how to capture a moment. Since our wedding ceremony took place in the late afternoon, Sara knew exactly how to work the lighting so that our photographs came out beautifully. I cannot recommend her enough and cannot wait to work with Sara and her team again!

  • We had the best experience with Sara!!! We used her for our engagement photos and our wedding. We had a minimony due to covid, and Sara was amazing at working with us when we had to adjust our plans due to many covid restrictions. Her photos were so so beautiful, and I’m so happy that we will have them forever. We were so impressed with how professional and amazing she was. She knew the perfect lighting, poses, and photos to get. She made sure that we got photos with every single combination of people that we wanted to. It was honestly the best money we spent at our small wedding and I would choose her again a million times over if I could! She is worth every penny!!! We definitely plan to use her again in the future when we do family photos and for other occasions! We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful sets of photos.

  • I wish I could give Sara more then 5 stars cause she really deserves it. From the start of our first interaction at the beginning of the year to receiving our photos she has made herself extremely accommodating. We were originally suppose to get married in April and due to COVID things took a turn however Sara was willing to do anything she could to accommodate us and still give us what we wanted beautiful wedding photos. On our wedding day she made us both feel completely comfortable. She made it easy to be in front of the camera. You could tell that she was incredible at what she does. She made it all feel so easy. When it was time and our photos were Ready and all I can say is WOW. My husband and I are still having trouble deciding what is our favorite. But I am so happy that there are So many great photos to choose from!! If your looking for someone upbeat, positive, reliable Sara is the photographer you should go to for your wedding day!
